Twins, 6, allowed to marry as ‘parents believe they were lovers in past life’

Brother and sister twins have been married in a Buddhist ceremony because their parents believe they were lovers in a former life, it has been reported.

Guitar and his sister Kiwi, both aged six, were thrown a lavish wedding party in Thailand costing the equivalent of thousands of pounds, reports claimed.

Family members, friends, and neighbours came to show their support and took part in the celebrations.

During the traditional ceremony, there was a street procession and a game which reportedly involved Guitar walking through nine gates to meet Kiwi.

Video footage shows people dancing and playing musical instruments out on the street, dressed in colourful clothes, before Guitar gives his sister a kiss on the cheek.

Guitar had to pay a dowry of 200,000 baht (£4,832) and gold worth £1000 before the marriage could go ahead, according to reports.

From the moment they were born in September 2012, the parents Amornsan Sunthorn Malirat, 31, and Phacharaporn, 30, reportedly knew their kids would have to tie the knot, according to the Daily Mail.

According to reports, some Buddhists think male and female twins have karma from relationships in a past life and have been reborn together as the debt has not been settled.

If they’re not married quickly, they might be dealt bad luck in the future, it is reportedly believed.

Speaking about the ancient belief, Amornsan told the Daily Mail: "We must arrange a wedding for the two twins as a solution to the issues they had before they were re-born.

"If they are married, they will live healthy and successful lives and not be sick."

Their mum added: "They were both so sweet during their wedding. They will be the best of friends for the rest of their lives."

The ceremony is not legally binding, and Phacharaporn confirmed they would both be able to go and find other partners when they grow up.
